What better way to honor Women’s History Month than to celebrate powerful women in the life sciences? Come to WIB-Greater Boston’s famous 6th Annual Lobster Pot. As the name suggests, this event will be in the “shark tank style,” with each fundraising executive pitching to investors and the audience. The investors will provide feedback on the pitch and comment on the ideas presented.
